This popular tortilla soup is made with a pureed mixture of tomatoes, cilantro, peppers, garlic, and onions. Add chicken and top it off with fried tortilla strips and your favorite garnishes. It's perfect for a potluck or family meal. Or take it along to a tailgating party or game day gathering.

If you like a chunkier soup with more vegetables, feel free to add some corn or drained and rinsed black beans to the soup.
